QuickBooks Online Accountant improvements
QuickBooks Online Accountant (QBOA) is the one place accounting professionals go to manage their firm and their QuickBooks clients. New QBOA improvements announced at QuickBooks Connect further help accountants save time and streamline their workflows so they can spend more time advising their clients. QBOA innovations announced at QuickBooks Connect include:
- Expanded Roles and Permissions: As accounting firms grow and serve more complex clients, more granular and customizable roles and permissions are needed to access the books of the firm and clients. QuickBooks is currently rolling out new advanced roles and permissions in QBOA to meet these needs. Accountants will be able to manage what their team can see and do on behalf of a client, choosing a role that limits access or views to banking, sales, or expense data. Accountants also will be able to delegate highly sensitive tasks to more experienced employees, such as paying invoices or running payroll to help avoid the risk of mistakes and liability.
- Chart of Accounts Templates: Now available in QBOA, Chart of Accounts templates save accountants time by streamlining the creation, customization, and saving of chart of accounts for new and existing clients. Accountants can build templates from scratch or customize ready-made product-based or service-based business charts of accounts. Accountants can also import templates from Microsoft Excel.
